7 Simple Steps to Harvest Equinox Makeup

Our next LovelySkin Signature look, Harvest Equinox, was designed to mimic the colors and textures of fall. From the changing leaves to the crisp air, we can’t get enough of autumn—or this harvest-inspired makeup look! Find out how to wear dark lipstick in the video and follow along with the steps below.

Step 1: Youngblood Mineral Primer

Apply: Warm a small amount between your fingers and apply directly to your skin for best results.

Step 2: Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation

Shade: Your own!

Apply: We recommend warming up a small amount of foundation on the back of the hand, then using clean fingertips to dot it evenly over the face. Then, use bareMinerals Smoothing Face Brush to blend it out for a beautiful base.

Step 3: glo minerals Eye Shadow

Shade: Twig

Apply: Sweep this neutral eyeshadow across your eyelids. We like to start with a sheer layer of color and build until we love the look.

Step 4: SUMITA Brow Pencil

Shade: Your own!

Apply: Fill in your brows using light pressure and short, quick strokes. This will give the color a more natural look.

Step 5: blinc Mascara

Shade: Black

Apply: Here’s a secret for lashes that really wow: wiggle the wand over your top and bottom lashes, which will evenly distribute the color without clumping.

Step 6: Youngblood Mineral Radiance Bronzer

Shade: Sunshine

Apply: Sweep a light dusting of bronzer across both cheeks. We suggest applying the product with a fluffy angled brush like Youngblood Natural Hair Brush - Contour Blush to give skin that beautiful glow.

Step 7: bareMinerals Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick

Shade: Posh

Apply: Apply two layers of this burgundy lipstick, blotting in between coats for added staying power.
